Advantages of Spring Displacer Switches

A displacer level switch is a type of level switch that works by displacement. Displacer switches have a variety of variations, including a special kind of switch for use with containers that have surface wave action. This kind of switch is ideal for use in sumps, tanks, and containers where there is a smaller variation in liquid level. This design uses a spring to activate the switch rather than a float actuator. These switches are also idea for use with liquids that also contain solid particles.

Fuel Sensors Explained

A fuel level sensor is a level switch that helps identify the remaining amount of fuel in a container. Most vehicles use fuel level sensors to determine the amount of fuel remaining in a vehicle. This is an important sensor that helps many people know when to fill up their vehicles to avoid disaster along the road. Some level switches manufacturers focus exclusively on fuel sensors, but others make a variety of switches, including fuel sensors. A fuel sensor is a fascinating piece of equipment that uses a few basic principles to work properly.

Should You Use High Level Switches?

In most cases, factories have the chance to choose between a high level switch or a transmitter for applications where both sensors can be used. For example, a factory could use both a high level switch or a transmitter to sound an alarm if the level of a liquid gets too high. So when both systems can be used, which is better for the job?

Controlling Liquids with RF Sensors

A capacitance level sensor is a level sensor that operates off of radio frequencies. They are often called RF level sensors, as an abbreviation for radio frequency. They are sometimes also referred to as admittance level sensors. These sensors detect the level of a material based on the alternating current circuit that changes along with the level of the liquid or material. These sensors are highly useful for measurement readings where accuracy is extremely important, such as when measuring molten metal or other dangerous liquids or chemicals. A capacitance level sensor has a variety of applications, such as:

Capacitance Level Sensors Uncovered

Capacitance level sensors, also called RF or radio frequency sensors, are sensors that detect the level of a liquid or substance based on the differences between the frequency the sensor emits with the amount of AC circuit current the sensor receives back from the material inside the container. The differences in the two frequencies can identify the level of the liquid or material inside the container. Capacitance level sensors are highly useful in measuring the level of critical materials, such as when a liquid has a chance of overflowing or dropping below a safe level.

Customization Options for Chambered Switches

A chambered level switch is a level switch contained inside a sealed chamber housing. These switches are used for applications where the metal components of the switch cannot touch the base material. The switches are used for measuring and controlling the liquid level of different materials, such as in transmission lines and large liquid holding tanks.
